I can't remember the last time I was truly interested in insight and had an app on a single server, non-loadbalanced and so on. A distributed system is a pain in terms of log scraping if you don't have the adequate tooling (ELK, Graphite,...). Some JS-include may be a less costly solution.

It obviously depends on how you design the web site / web application.

JS-includes are cheaper for developers, but expensive (in term of both security and computing resources) for users.
